/ Audio Books
Anyone got any recommendations for good audio books to while away those motorway miles ?
I find something like a radio play much easier to follow when driving than a book being read.
I get audio books out the local library, they have a really good collection. My favourite one by miles (that I picked out because I was running out of options) was "A Short History of Tractors in Ukranian" by Marina Lewcyka sp? The narrator is absolutely fantastic, unlike some of those American over-actors that can narrate the books. If you like it she's written "Two caravans" as well which is equally amusing, well written and read by the same wonderful narrator.
I would think that a radio play would be far less distracting for driving as the different voices don't need as much imagination to put the words to the right character.
My choices: The Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy series, the Miss Marple stories starring June Whitfield, Fry's English Delight for factual interest.
